The Blind Side


What does Catwalk's principal/owner Adie have in common with Tim Mcgraw, Sandra Bullock and Kathy Bates? A little movie with a Golden Globe nod (best actress, Sandra Bullock)and nomination for the SAG awards(female actor in a leading role, Sandra Bullock) called The Blind Side. OK, so we admit--a little stretch, but Adie had an amazing experience working on the film and is proud to have been a part of it. Catwalk loves the Phil Fulmer cameo appearances too. The Blind Side is a great story that reminds each of us that we can be extraordinary.

Popular site HARO(Help a Reporter Out) has competition!

According to PR Web (http://www.prweb.com/releases/2009/12/prweb3369714.htm) the popular site HARO might be challenged by the new kid on the block, reporterconnection.com. The new Web site launched today and it is a free service which allows journalists to announce source needs via email to up to 51,000 experts in the company’s database. From what we can tell, HARO and reporterconnection.com are similar, the latter has tweaked what worked for HARO and made it more "journalist-friendly" and will not publish the journalist's email addresses like HARO does via daily email blasts.

Check it out for yourself: www.reporterconnection.com.

Are you an expert in your field? Do you want a shot at free publicity because you can help provide information for reporters and editors? We signed up, maybe you should too!

Hard to Buy for Guy?


Dads, boyfriends, brothers, college-aged sons, coaches, teachers...we all have one or more of those hard to buy for guys!

Consider getting him a gift card or an annual pass to Liquid Highway Car Wash if you're local in Charleston or Mt. Pleasant. If not, google the car washes in your area.

An annual pass to a car wash won't be returned and you know they'll use it. Everyone likes a clean car, but some of us aren't willing to do it ourselves. Then there are the other eco-friendly folks who know washing their cars at home isn't the best idea for our environment. Annual Passes to Liquid Highway Car Wash are green and guaranteed not to lead to another "Oh, thanks honey. I needed new socks."
Suprise him this year!

It's Always a Jam Good Time


The Freeloaders head back home Saturday, December 6th for a 10pm show at the world-famous Windjammer on Isle of Palms.

After surviving Hurricane Hugo and many a Budweiser Bikini Bash through the years, the Jammer is one of the best places to hear live music in Charleston. The venue has seen many great acts like John Mayer, Edwin McCain, Big Head Todd and the Monsters and Cracker grace its stage.

Our Wedding Favor Faves!!


At Catwalk, we like things that are new and different. Just like you, we're tired of the usual wedding favors...like the ever-popular candy coated pastel or white Jordan Almonds, please!! We beg you brides, no more! Even if they're in cute little silver boxes with satin bows that someone spent hours assembling, we don't want 'em!

Let's explore other options-here are a few of our faves:
-The Wine Cork Candle from http://www.favoraffair.com, with 2 hours of burn time we think it's perfect for a wedding in wine country.
-Personalized Tic-Tac Boxes,also from Favor Affair...for those who are tempted to say "James and Sue, Mint to Be" go ahead, it is cute!
-Loving the Match Pen from Beau-Coup, http://www.beau-coup.com/. See pic!
-Feel good favors--portion of proceeds go to Oprah's Angel Network, visit http://www.givefavors.com.
-Everyone loves confetti(unless you are the one cleaning it up) and isn't it better with a picture of you and your beloved on it? Visit http://www.photofetti.com.

Work your colors and theme into every last detail, even the wedding favors. Send guests home with something that will remind them of the great time they had at your wedding and that will be enjoyable! We these kind of options out there, make sure your favors won't be left behind.

The NY Times Touts the Value of "the PR Machine" in Recent Article


Read this article in The New York Times from Brooks Burns now! The article entitled "Ad Budget Tight? Call the PR Machine" reminds us of the roots and follows the trends in public relations tactics in Hollywood and beyond. Of course, Hollywood hasn't cut out marketing or advertising entirely, but consider this: Paramount Pictures did not buy a single billboard to promote “Paranormal Activity,” its recent horror film. The studio also saved tens of millions of dollars by forgoing a national television campaign. Instead, Paramount depended on its publicity arm to fan interest on blogs and in traditional media. The flack attack worked: the film, made for just $10,000, has sold $104 million in tickets. Catwalkers don't LOVE scary movies, so we haven't seen it, but hey--we're just saying!
The article goes on to discuss Disney's new in-house program that generates the ad value for say a 30 second interview on "Access Hollywood" as compared to buying a 30 second spot during the same show. The article also mentions the value of a "media hit" compared to that of a paid advertisment. Consumers often are more apt to take a suggestion and make a purchase because they saw Oprah interview the company's founder, which has a solid impact. Viewers who saw a commercial for the same company's product might or might not remember the product. Since "media hits" seem to have gone through a filter first, that makes them more vaulable for our clients.

Charleston Animal Society Fundraiser with Liquid Highway Car Wash


Here at Catwalk and Company, we're animal lovers. We have a soft spot in our hearts for furry critters, especially the ones that need homes. Personally, I believe that rescuing a dog or cat is the most rewarding thing you can do--who needs breeders? Some of you have met my soul-pet, Riley. He's a two year-old rescue boxer and he's seen me through hard times and I don't know what I'd do without his little dog face waking me up every morning.

Every little bit helps, right? Join us at Liquid Highway Car Wash and help out Charleston Animal Soceity.

From November 9-15, come to LIQUID HIGHWAY CAR WASH and mention code CAS(Charleston Animal Society). We're donating a portion of profits from EVERYONE who tells us the code back to CAS spay/neuter programs. Not to get all Bob Barker on you, but please remember to spay and neuter your animals.

WHAT: Fundraising for Charleston Animal Society
WHEN: November 9-15

Introducing Catwalk's New Choreographer

Shake it!!Want to dance your way into the wedding ceremony like that YouTube video featuring Chris Brown's hit Forever that got so much attention the couple recreated it for The Today Show? Now you can, Catwalk is proud to announce that we have our very own choreographer. Catwalk's new dance diva will choreograph and teach your wedding party how to make an entrance that none of the guests will ever forget.

Prefer to keep your ceremony traditional? Then think about dancing into your reception to your favorite hit song. No more DJs announcing the bridal parties names as guests try to find seats and check out the reception venue--wake them up with a mini-production! Making a grand entrance is a great way to incorporate little ones too-how cute would your flower girls be shaking it to an old classic or what about your groom and his buddies doing Thriller?





Catwalk's choreographer has 20+ years of dance training. She's our secret weapon, having competed in group and solo categories at various dance competitions throughout the Southeast for 10+ years and she was also the choreographer for Carolina Alive! Showchoir at USC from 2000-2003. This gal has been hired by Chapin High School’s choir and, most recently, Wando High School for both their ladies’ ensemble and co-ed showchoir.
All we can say is, woop woop-get your dancing shoes on brides and grooms!!

NJ's Oldest Alt-Rock Weekly Talks About The Freeloaders

On page 10 of the print edition in the Spotlight section, Christina Jimenez of The Aquarian says "It sucks how blues bands that are talented like The Freeloaders get lumped in with those hacky sack toolbag bands. This South Carolina-based band takes its Janis Joplin-like lead singer and ads a mix of blues, funk and rock to create ear candy for anyone looking to be back in the "summer of love" days."

The Art of Cakes

Who doesn't love the wedding cake? I recently watched a Style Channel show called The Art of Cakes and just died...yes, channeling Rachel Zoe-but about cakes, not couture.

The little cupcakes, adorable. The dessert bar, charming. An amazing cake with edible sugar flowers so life-like that one can't tell the difference between the real flower and the edible flower, fantastic. The cake GURU, a one Sylvia Weinstock, even autographs her cakes-rightly so, they're works of art. So she signs them, much like Da Vinci signed his work. Prepare to be amazed: http://www.sylviaweinstock.com/index_fl4.html.

A wedding cake can be the crowning glory at the reception, reigning from its own table-the cake speaks to the couple's idea of grandeur, their traditions, or it might reflect the bride's dress with lace detailing. And that's just the outside. The inside can be a decadent combination of flavors and fillings, from the mundane to the out of this world. From chocolate ganache to organic carrot cake, bakers do it all.
Prepare to be amazed when thinking about a cake for your wedding. Use your imagination and most importantly, find a cake designer who is supportive, and who offers creative suggestions. Don't let your budget fool you into thinking you can only do something traditional. Unique ideas like personalized cake toppers, custom made paper decorations for the cake (think about the scrapbook store), ribbon, lace and more are budget friendly. Imagination is the only limit to creating the perfect cake that reflects a couple's style.

Does the Devil really wear Prada?


I can't wait to see the new documentary on legendary Vogue queen Anna Wintour. Check out the op-ed from Maureen Dowd at The New York Times:
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/23/opinion/23dowd.html?_r=2

My favorite part of Dowd's column on Anna? This quote: "So the question invariably arises: Behind those bangs and dark glasses, is Anna human? Or did she tie Hermès scarves together and make a daring escape from District 9 in a getaway car driven by Oscar de la Renta?"

Catwalk's Wedding Weekend with Em and Rob


Gorgeous bride and a handsome groom-check.
Lovely live oaks and sweeping spanish moss-check.


Catwalk and Company's first wedding under the new business was definitely a success. The bride was beautiful in a Nicole Miller gown, her groom sported seersucker and Dolly Parton was in attendance. OK, not the real Dolly, but an impersonator. Our Dolly's version of "Something Special" was the first dance song and her rousing rendition of "Rocky Top" made sure these guests had a foot-stomping, knee slapping good time.
After a service at Belin United Methodist Church in Murrell's Inlet, guests enjoyed a reception at Kimbel's at Wachesaw Plantation. The tables were set with calla lilies and sea glass centerpieces, the cake was complete with layers of red velvet, raspberry with white cake, and even a hazelnut with chocolate layer. Guests loved the gorgeous marsh views from the deck at Kimbel's and the bride and groom exited in style with white-hot sparklers to their after-party at the Hot Fish Club.

Great Idea for a Wedding Video!

Check out Charleston Video Service's wedding day video for Hannah and Cal. I had the pleasure of meeting David Keller of Charleston Video Service this week at the Pour House.

Brides, let's tweak tradition! Think about showing this at your reception instead of the always emotional, yet sometimes boring slide show put to music. We all like seeing pictures of the bride wearing slap bracelets and sporting a side ponytail with her Rainbow Bright doll and the groom in his Freddy Krueger halloween costume when he was thirteen, but come on people! Let's do something different!

Home Car Washing Pollutes. The Numbers Prove It.

Another study just released proves that home car washing is harmful. In Federal Way, WA residents are learning what environmentalists have known for years, washing their cars in the driveway is detrimental to local waterways.

As a proud SC resident and I love Lowcountry life. I buy lemonade from school children on the beach and purchase cookies from Girl Scounts outside Wal-Mart. I don't however support charity car washes. Charity car washes are a thing of the past or perhaps, they should be. Residents protect our local waterways from trash and debris, by participating in beach cleanups, urging tourists to pick up after themselves and Charleston even touts an entire festival centered around green businesses,the Charleston Green Festival in Marion Square.

In the Lowcountry, we have a gorgeous structure, The Ravenel Bridge. We appreciate sealife so much that we turn the lights on the bridge off at night, so that sea turtles don't become disoriented as they navigate to the ocean. The Federal Way Mirror says "the harmful materials that find their way to the region's (in Washington)waterways reek chaos on aquatic life. Products such as oil can contaminate wildlife. Phosphorous and nitrogen can lead to excessive plant growth and decay, which degrades water quality, according to the study."

The article also mentions how stormwater and materials caught up in the water will flow to nearby creeks, streams and lakes. "These then transport the items to the Puget Sound. The stormwater catch basins are designed to restrict solids from entering the drainage system, but pollutants slip by sometimes, Smith said."

If your organization would like to raise money and in the past, might have considered a car wash, please email me: Adie@liquidhighwaycarwash.com. I know we can craft a fundraising program for your team or club that is environmentally-friendly AND that will get your team in those new uniforms before the first game. No bathing suits or posterboard signs required.

For all you non-believers (in the impact of viral videos, social media marketing/networking and the like), Catwalk and Company says, wake up! This is a great example of the power of viral videos and their impact on mainstream media. To date, Jill and Kevin's video has had 13,972,246 views!

Dirty Car, New Client!

Everyone loves a clean car. Heck, you might not mind driving carpool, taking your friends out to happy hour or even going that road trip to your 87 year-old aunt's house four states away if you've got a great playlist on the IPOD, stellar coffee or enough diet coke for a small army and a clean car. I've never had the clean car. I'm the girl who scrambles to move shoes, magazines, empty diet coke cans, and that belt that I thought would match, then I got to where I was going, and well, decided clearly it did not match. Let's not forget the 65 lb. boxer pup that travels with me, hitting up dog parks all over town. Oh, and a bright pink yoga mat. Nope, not your clean car keepin' kind of gal.

Catwalk and Company is proud to present our newest client, enter Liquid Highway, located in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., less than 10 miles from historic Charleston and only two miles from the beach. In the coming months, look for a Facebook fan page, new promotions and deals with Mt. Pleasant businesses and more!

Chanel and The Grand Palais

What an incredible venue for Chanel's Haute Couture Show yesterday. Paris staged its first Universal Exhibition in 1855 and built the Palais de l'industrie, inspired by Britain's Crystal Palace, which demonstrated France's ability to replicate Britain's technical achievement. Adding a stone facade drew further admiration from the public. The Palais de l'Industrie, constructed for the 1855 Universal Exhibition, was demolished and replaced by the Grand Palais in 1900. The Palais de l'Industrie is dead, vive le Grand Palais!

Chanel's Fall-Winter Collection exposes short hemlines, oozes romance and evokes a sense of mystery! The only disappointment-the presence of the shoe bootie. Other than that, bien fait as always Sir Lagerfeld.

Beach Weddings: Seersucker or Seaside Couture?


Do you think Pachelbel's Cannon in D sounds better with the cadence of ocean waves in the background? If so, you might be considering a beach wedding. There is no doubt about it, beach weddings are en vogue.

Beach weddings can be elegant affairs combined with the sun, surf and sand or sometimes, they might require little more than a snazzy pair of your favorite flip flops. Whatever your vision, as a bride, communicate it to your wedding planner. Remember, saying "I want to have a beach wedding" can mean a number of different things. For example, location is the first thing to determine. If you love the look of the beach, but would rather not have sand in your Jimmy Choos, then go for a locale that boasts views of the ocean, but don't schedule the ceremony on the sand.

Announcing Catwalk and Company Weddings
Services offered include:
  • Complete Wedding Planning: Site visits to cake tastings, save-the-dates to photography, along with contract managment, decor and design. This option provides complete planning.
  • Wedding Week Only: Banish wedding week worries with this option. On-site supervision for the wedding day along with attention to any last minute details might be all you need for your special day.
